    Professor Moinester investigates questions concerning immigration, inequality, and health.  

    Margot Moinester is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Her current project uses quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate how and why rates of immigration enforcement vary over time, between demographic groups, and across the elaborate jurisdictional landscape of the United States. Articles from this project have been published in American Behavioral Scientist and Demography and received awards from the American Sociological Association and the Population Association of America.  

    Her research has been supported by the American Bar Foundation and the National Science Foundation, among others. She has a Ph.D. in Sociology from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University.
